Target version:-


Grfcodec produces a lot of terminal output that looks like:
"Loading sprites/pcx/other/cargoicons.pcx(Transparency:100%, Redundancy:100%)"

This is not of any use to me. Never has been. It just puts a lot of noise in the terminal window. I want less noise, more signal! If we hid this output, errors would show, and I wouldn't have to scroll the terminal window every fricking time I make :)

So, is there a way for make to hide this pointless output, and just keep the useful (errors).

simple workaround would be:

make <whatever> | less

To avoid possible confusion, I mean 'grfcodec used in the context of the makefile'!
